This is an eighty cover, non smoking restaurant with outside and inside tables opened in 2006 and it is the original restaurant serving Italian foods in resort alongside it's international menu. It has gained a great name for steaks and Italian foods, along with homemade desserts. The surroundings are comfortable and cosy with soft lighting and background music. It is a family and couples friendly place which is often chosen for special parties, i.E. Birthdays and anniversaries. Free Wifi is also available. The place is extremely busy between 8 pm and 10 pm so booking is advisable to avoid disappointment especially in the height of summer. Won a certificate of excellence from Tripadvisor June 2013, a local business award as No 1 restaurant in resort 2013 and a No. 1 Restaurant in 2013 and 2014 award from Altinkum Debate Group on Facebook (6000 members)
